Wherever there is an unfortunate, God sends a dog.

As a child, Douglas was abused by a violent father who then threw him to the dogs. Instead of attacking him, the dogs protected him. Traumatised and leading a life on the margins of society with his dogs, Douglas descends into a murderous madness. With Caleb Landry Jones, Marisa Berenson, Jonica T. Gibbs

“Then there’s [Luc] Besson’s trademark sense of the visual, which is still solid. … The trademark final showdown in a confined space is an amusing mix of ‘Assault on Precinct 13,’ ‘101 Dalmatians’ and ‘Home Alone 2’ that you didn’t know you wanted.” (ScreenAnarchy)

“It’s a lot to handle and also silly, but Besson often pulls it off — thanks in no small part to a commanding performance by the chameleon-like Caleb Landry Jones, who manages to be touching and slightly terrifying at the same time.” (Hollywood Reporter)

“An audacious, funny, exhilarating and heartfelt crime thriller. Caleb Landry Jones gives one of the best performances of his career.” (NYC Movie Guru)

“This bizarre and macabre drama-thriller is watchable and Caleb Landry Jones gives an oddly engaging performance.” (Guardian)
